"We", the sixth studio album of the Canadian rock band ARCADE FIRE, will be released on May 6, which are back after five years from their previous record project “Everything Now”. The release of 'We' was anticipated by the first single "The Lightning I, II".
"We", recorded in multiple locations such as New Orleans, El Paso and Mount Desert Island and produced by Nigel Godrich (who boasts collaborations with artists and bands such as Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Travis, Beck, U2, Roger Waters, REM and many others) and Win Butler & Régine Chassagne, leaders of the band as well as husband and wife, paradoxically summarizes "the longest time we have ever spent writing, without interruption" (as Win Butler himself stated) in a concise epic of 40 minutes, inspired both by the forces that cause the distancing between the people who love each other, and by the urgency to overcome them.
The cathartic journey of "We" follows a well-defined arc that starts from darkness and reaches the light: a path formed by seven songs divided into two distinct parts, the first "I", which channels the fear and loneliness of isolation , and the second "We" which expresses the joy and power of contact.
On the album cover, the photograph of a human eye by the artist JR evokes Sagittarius A *, the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. This striking image, enhanced by Terry Pastor's signature airbrush coloring (who used the same technique used on David Bowie's iconic “Hunky Dory” and “Ziggy Stardust” album covers), is the perfect visual expression of “We”.
In addition to being known for their undisputed musical value and live performances (among the fans of the band we find Bono of U2, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Simple Minds), ARCADE FIRE are distinguished by their truly rich and original indie / alternative rock sound, characterized by beautiful and complex harmonizations generated by the interaction between guitar, drums, keyboards and bass with particular instruments such as harp, violin, accordion, double bass, cello, xylophone, French horn, viola and organ.
ARCADE FIRE won a Grammy Award in 2008 with 'The Suburbs', which was awarded best album of the year.
